Morales_Menendez_CelebrationsofTampaBay_Morales109_lowWedding of Dayna & Robert Menendez at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa. We started with the bride at the Barrymore Hotel which is right next to the Straz Center. The ceremony was underneath a tent right on the Riverwalk. The Straz Center provides a great atmosphere for weddings, plenty of great areas for photography. The Waterfalls are ideal for bridal party shots.

Morales_Menendez_CelebrationsofTampaBay_Morales546_lowWe also utilized the old railroad bridge Cass Street Bridge. It was a little tedius getting the girls out on the bridge, but makes for some great shots as you can see. For more information on weddings at The Straz Center see reception was at the 1930 Grande Room in Ybor City. The night lighting is great along 7th Avenue.
